My neighbour lumbers down the stairs
Making the empty beer bottles a symphony of rhythm
On my sideboard as the jazz continues now with
Miles playing Round Midnight which is where we are
Right now, desperately clinging to the hope that maybe
The next beer and smoke may finally see off this day
I've just lived and allow me to get some sleep.
